Assuming you mean the t-statistic from least squares regression, the t-statistic is the regression coefficient (of a given independent variable) divided by its standard error. The standard error is essentially one estimated standard deviation of the data set for the relevant variable. To have a very large t-statistic implies that the coefficient was able to be estimated with a fair amount of accuracy. If the t-stat is more than 2 (the coefficient is at least twice as large as the standard error), you would generally conclude that the variable in question has a significant impact on the dependent variable. High t-statistics (over 2) mean the variable is significant. What if it's REALLY high? Then something is wrong. The data points might be serially correlated.

What is the mean in statistics?

The mean is the average. It is the sum of the x-values divided by the total number of observations. for example: 1 3 4 5 7 10 12 15 1+3+5+7+10+12+15=57 The

What does it mean if your t cells are high?

  A high T cell count could mean one of many things. There is no single conclusion that can be drawn from a high T cell count unless a complete blood test is done and the

What does a negative t statistic mean?

In statistics, the t-test is a measure of the probability of a particular event happening. It is based upon a normal (bell-shaped curve) distribution of probabilities. A negat
